Speaking to media after the meetings, Jagan said that he explained them that the Chandrababu Naidu government in the State is encouraging defections. He went a head and has given ministerial berths to the defected MLAs whose resignations are pending with the Speaker leading to degradation of democratic values. He said that Jaitely is basically an advocate and if he understands what is happening in the State that is under their friendly party’s rule will let know the BJP top leaders who in turn guides Nara Chandrababu Naidu.
